lyrics

Miss Ruth:

Miss Ruth, you wanna come over
Play dice on that old kitchen stove
Serves me right to be all alone
Because this city lied and hearts I stole

But I won’t fight this dawn anymore
Two feet wide and truth’s out the door
What is it we’re living for?
We’re fighting for?
Is there more?
Please God let there be more

Sinking ship, when I read your letter
Trash it went, fell hard on the floor
Broken plate, I cussed your name
We all seem to know what we’re doing
But it slips your fingers, never crossed you mind

But I won’t fight this dawn anymore
Two feet wide and truth’s out the door
What is it we’re living for?
We’re fighting for?
Is there more?
Please God let there be more
Let there be more

Is there more?

Sinking ship, when I read you letter
Trash it went, fell hard on the floor
Broken plate, I cussed your name
